An arts pop-up has unveiled its programme for a new performance space opening up during Cop26 in Glasgow.

The Landing Hub forms part of the Sustainable Glasgow Landing site on the city’s Broomielaw, a short walk from the summit’s main centre at the SEC.

It will turn a piece of derelict land into a vibrant multi-purpose area for performers from across the world, as well as film screenings, workshops and talks.

Landing Hub programme highlights include the unveiling of a new light poem artwork by Scottish conceptual visual artist Robert Montgomery and Xingu Indigenous Occupation in collaboration with People’s Palace Projects.

Also on the bill is a performance from Katy Dye, as well as VJ Jamie Wardrop with musician Sita Pieraccini, dance from Penny Chivas and the People’s Summit/COP coalition’s three-day takeover.

Radio Buena Vida guest DJs including Nightwave (whose new album Love Amazonia has been created to support the Huni Kuin, a tribe based mainly in the Brazilian Amazon) and Butho the Warrior will play sets during the programme.

The site will be open from 9am to 6pm on specific weekdays and until 10pm on weekends between October 29 and November 14.

The project is a collaboration between New Practice Architects and event management company Inhouse delivered for Glasgow City Council.

Becca Thomas (ARB), Creative Director & Architect, New Practice, said: “New Practice are delighted to bring together this project which will provide a valuable public space for gathering, discussion and learning during Cop26. We will be bringing life to this vacant site and hosting local and global organisations that are responding to the challenges of the climate crisis.

“New Practice are excited to invite Glaswegians, local organisations, global communities and delegates to this new space on the riverfront.”

Glasgow City Council leader Susan Aitken said: “While global leaders are meeting at the SEC, the Sustainable Glasgow Landing is a place where the city’s people and communities can come together and have their own conversation about the climate crisis.

“The exciting programme of events reflects the fact that Glasgow, its city region and Scotland are all innovative and ambitious places; where sustainable solutions to immense challenges can be found and the lives of ordinary citizens are absolutely central to a just transition to net zero.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how Glaswegians and visiting delegates alike respond – and how they make it their own.”
